Methamphetamine Possession in Los Angeles, California

If an individual is caught having a usable amount of meth in his possession, the prosecution can convict him of violating Health and Safety Code Section 11377 unless the individual can show that he had a valid prescription for, which is highly unlikely. If you’ve been charged with the possession of meth, you should immediately contact an experienced Los Angeles Attorney for Meth Possession at The H Law Group.

Meth Amphetamine Possession Misdemeanor vs Felony

The prosecution can bring meth possession charges against an individual under California Health and Safety Code Section 11377 HSC. If an individual possesses a small amount of methamphetamine, the prosecution typically brings misdemeanor charges against an individual in what it calls simple meth possession. However, if the amount of meth that you had at the time of your encounter with law enforcement was more than what is typically found for personal use, the prosecution may bring possession of meth with intent to sell charges, which are a felony-level charge. 

So, the quantity of meth that you had in your possession, as well as if you had items, such as a scale or a lot of law denomination bills, packaging, and text messages will determine whether the prosecution decides to bring a misdemeanor simple meth charge or more serious felony charges against you. If you’ve been charged with or arrested for possession of meth, you should immediately contact a Los Angeles meth possession attorney at The H Law Group to defend you and achieve the best results for you. Our drug possession defense attorneys may be able to get the charges against you dismissed, and if they can’t, they will do all that they can to achieve a favorable plea deal for you.

Methamphetamine Possession Penalties

If the prosecution convicts an individual for a first-time misdemeanor offense of meth possession, an individual faces a maximum of twelve (12) months in county jail, as well as a fine of up to $1,000. That said, if you’ve been previously convicted for a violent offense or convicted of drug possession with intent to sell, the prosecution may bring felony meth possession charges. IF convicted of felony meth possession, an individual faces a maximum prison sentence of three (3) years, as well as a fine of up to $2,000. So, if you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or felony meth possession, you should immediately contact an experienced drug crime attorney at The H Law Group to defend you.  

Drug Diversion Program for Meth Possession

If you’ve been charged with possession, you should ask your criminal defense attorney about your option to participate in a meth possession program. A diversion program allows first-time meth possession offenders to complete a drug education program; once completed, the defendant’s charges are dismissed. However, this program is only available to those who have not committed a violent act in conjunction with their possession of meth. Also, if an individual agrees to participate in the drug diversion program but does not complete the program, the defendant will be found guilty, and the prosecution has the right to impose the strictest penalties against the defendant. So, if you’ve been charged with meth possession, you should ask your meth possession defense attorney about your option to participate in the drug diversion program.
